CFHI has also partnered with AMWA to provide one member per year with a $500 scholarship towards any CFHI program.  

Who Can Apply?

CFHI is committed to working globally and addressing inequities. In line with this global lens, it is the policy of CFHI to actively seek a diverse pool of candidates from a variety of backgrounds who are committed to the mission and vision of CFHI. Scholarships will be given to students who demonstrate a commitment to their communities as well as financial need and an interest in exchanging ideas and sharing experiences with people in Bolivia, Ecuador, Mexico, Argentina, India, South Africa and Uganda.  Priority will be given to people of ethnicities under-represented in CFHI programs, as well as those who have had limited opportunity to travel abroad.   All interested in attending a CFHI program during the specified program months/year and who are financially able to pay the remaining program fees along with their own airfare are encouraged to apply.  Preference will be given to those who apply for scholarship consideration as well as submit an application to a CFHI program online.  Scholarship applicants wishing to attend any CFHI program in Latin America (Mexico, Bolivia, Ecuador, and Argentina) must meet the language eligibility requirements listed for that program.

Scholarship Recipient Requirements:

Recipients of CFHI scholarships will be required to pay their own airfare, the balance of their CFHI program fees, and any personal expenses as outlined on the program description pages. Recipients must keep a clinical and cultural immersion journal to be used as part of their scholarship report submitted at the end of their program. They must take photographs while abroad that may be used on the CFHI website and in CFHI publications and materials.

Recipients may also be required to write an article about their experience for CFHI newsletters or other publications. They must also be willing to report their perspective on diversity in the host country with particular focus in medical and social contexts. CFHI will ask recipients to act as Campus Representatives or Alumni Ambassadors for prospective CFHI participants, and may be asked to attend study abroad fairs in their local area.
